January 2012 Holidays, Observances, and Awareness Dates: Plan Your Promotions!
Wow, is it January already? Between the holidays and end of the year wrap up here at Quality Logo Products, we let some time slip away from us. But we’re back, you’re back, and it’s time to jump feet first into January and 2012.
With Customer Service Day and National Thank Your Customers Week, January is still the perfect month for corporate gifts. Besides, with your competitors’ gift baskets already last month’s news, your thank you gift will be fresh and new. And thus, your brand will be fresh and new in your clients’ minds.
Look at the other things going on this month (click to enlarge):
Even though Festival of Sleep Day has passed, it’s still one that I believe should be celebrated all month. Support healthy sleeping patterns and make your corporate gift a whimsical plushie. These stuffed animals are positively adorable and very cuddly for optimum napping partners.
You don’t really need a holiday to hand out promotional pens, but National Book Month and National Letter Writing Week are great reasons to get some pens into your clients’ hands.
Spooner Mugs aren’t just a great promotion for the soup lovers in your life, but it’s a fantastic overall winter promotion. And considering that we have (at least) two months left of cold, mugs and other wintertime items will still see a lot of use.
A new year brings self-improvement, so tailor your promotional products to popular resolutions. Try some gum for those trying to quit smoking, pedometers for an office fitness challenge, or desk storage containers to tidy up your work space. Everyone can use a little encouragement!
Are you ready to have the best January promotion ever? If you’re ready to get started or want some more suggestions, then contact one of our friendly and knowledgeable representatives by phone (866-312-5646), by e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org), via live chat, or leaving a comment below!
